[edit] Background

Onimusha 2 begins 13 years after the events portrayed in Onimusha: Warlords and once again blends actual historical accounts of 16th century Feudal Japan with fictional characters and storyline. Following a brutal attack on a village by the infamous warlord Nobunaga, players take control of Yagyu Jubei, a young warrior and master of the Yagyu Shinkage sword fighting style, who seeks to exact revenge on Nobunaga.
In a revolutionary use of talent, Onimusha 2 effectively 'brings to life' the late Japanese actor, Yusaku Matsuda as Yagyu Jubei. Matsuda will be best known to European audiences for his role in the 1989 film Black Rain where he co-starred alongside Michael Douglas.

A host of other entertainment professionals with expertise in writing, special effects and motion capture lend their talents to the project including famed Japanese film director, Keita Amemiya, whose character designs add cinematic realism to the world of Onimusha 2.
